I found a shopfox mortiser in ok shape at a junk shop which i was deadset on getting. But right next to it was a grizzly g1037z. Rusted posts, been sitting in rain but they said they would do $25. If i had my truck with me I would have just got it. But now I have to evaluate. I need another junk tool like a hole in my head. But it looked ok, rusted posts and the bed had some rust. No planer knives, just one rusted up molding knife. Not sure its worth it?

Does it run? Since you are able to identify the parts with rust the Grizzly website has an exploded view, parts diagram and price list here. Pricing the parts needed may help in making your purchase decision.

For $25 it’s worth the entertainment value.

Does it need a new motor? If it does, as well as all of the rust you mention, it might be better to pass.

I would buy it for $25 in the blink of an eye.

It does run, it does raise and lower but the rust prevents much movement. According to grizzly the posts are around $9.

Then I would say go for it. You may get a helluva deal out of it. And a new moulding cutter!
